Ankle Pain Physiotherapy at Physio4Wycombe
Ankle pain is extremely common and one of the most common conditions patients visit Physio4Wycombe for treatment is following suffering an ankle sprain. A sprained ankle may cause anything from mild to significant pain depending on the actual injury and it’s severity. An ankle sprain occurs commonly in sports like netball, basketball, football but you don’t have to be playing sport to sprain your ankle. At Physio4Wycombe we will see numerous sprained ankles requiring physiotherapy each year as a result of something as simple as walking on an uneven footpath, twisting in high heels or missing a step.
Although a common injury, there is no such thing as just an ankle sprain, a “simple” rolled ankle can result in injury and damage to many different structures and having your ankle assessed and receiving treatment from an experienced physiotherapist will help diagnose and ensure correct management of the injury. Failure to correctly manage even minor ankle sprains can result in ineffective healing, prolonged recovery and potentially an increased likelihood of recurrence.
